Boston Bruins Trade Deadline Deals

When all was said and done, the Bruins acquired forward Mark Recchi, defenseman Steve Montador, and a second round pick in 2010. They gave up Matt Lashoff (D), Petteri Nokelainen (F) and Martin Karsums (F).

All in all, I like the trades. It toughens up their blue line, adds the left handed shot for the power play, upgrades Bergeron's line (I'm guessing that's where Recchi will play) and both guys have gone to the finals in the playoffs, with Recchi having won two Cups.

They gave up some youth, all of which have a chance of being NHL regulars. Of the three, I liked Nokie the best. Still, they've not given up any regulars and upgraded their team. we go!
